Solar Power for the city
In one year, the sun gives off enough energy to meet the Earth’s energy needs for 1,437 years.
So why aren’t we powering the world with solar energy? While there are a few major roadblocks that are preventing us from reimagining our world’s power supply overnight, there is no doubt that solar power is on the rise.

Horse Power In Art History
Power & Grace In Motion
Above and beyond that, a unique aesthetic beauty unmatched by any other living creature in creation. There is the reality of the horse and there is the idea of the horse. Combined in a single construct, a special art has existed to celebrate the horse since the first human artists used the stone walls of their cave dwellings as the first canvases. Watching Werner Herzog’s 2010 documentary on the Chauvet Caves in southern France, Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010), gives one a sense of the powerful bond of human and horse, of the capture of early humanit

“Hush, my friends.

Walk with me on the winds of a victory of kings, and tell me now: whose flock will be crushed under the blow of defeat? Will you bathe in the white solace of the banners of salvation, or burn in the fiery fire of the warriors of damnation?”

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility.

It's probably not even September, but most likely October. Anyway it doesn't really matter, because it's always cold thanks to nuclear winter and it's always either snowing or "ashening" with rare instances of sunlight breaking through the thick, gloomy, black clouds overhead.
I've made many mistakes in my past, and I don't have much to look forward in the future, but yet I keep living for some reason, even if that reason is captain's continuous entertainment.
Everyday before I fall asleep I think of what horrible things the captain will do tomorrow. This week the bastard kept dressing me up in ridiculous outfits and giving me new "personalities to play".

Today captain declared as "REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAY".
The day begun with me getting smacked with a broken laptop and yells "YOU'VE GOT MAIL!".
I tried to protest that laptops weren't attacking people in the mornings back in the past. To this, Captain declared that in fact they didn't have to, because users were so addicted to reading their daily mail facts that every morning they woke up smacking their heads on their laptops.
Then my head was treated to a barrage of empty, metal SPAM cans with words "SPAM MAIL! DODGE THE SPAM! USE FILTERS!".
With these words, captain gave me two old tennis rackets. The tennis rackets had yellow duck-tape stickers on them with words "DELETE" and "BLOCK EMAIL ADDRESS".

There is a lonely figure standing in the street.
No matter how hard I try to make out his or her expression, I cannot. Is there no face there at all? Or perhaps there is a million human faces there, intertwined and flickering in unison, as bright as the light of ten thousand suns?
The being stares into the abyss of the vortex.

I applaud ANYONE concerned about these issues and willing to help with time and money. BUT trying to take down a tumblr about dirty jokes and ponies doesn’t amount to fuck-all.

"H.Res.368 changed the standing rules of the House to take away from any member of the house the privilege of calling up the senate bill to immediately reopen the government..." "...and gave that right exclusively to the republican leader."
This is important.
Please share this.
"What people don't know is that they rigged the rules of the House to keep the government shut down," Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), ranking member of the House Budget Committee, told TPM in an interview. "This is a blatant effort to make sure that the Senate bill did not come up for a vote."

Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life by George Bridgman
Even if you don't draw people, I still recommend this book... as it teaches "blocking-in"/gestures. Copy the drawings/sketches from the book to help yourself build good habits.

Learn to see and you will learn to draw—this book explains how to see (with a more subjective approach).

"Self-discipline is the strongest weapon of the mind, the best tool to maintain the balance between the emotional and the rational."
"What am I waiting for? Waiting only fools me into thinking that I am changing slowly. There is no change without action, and with no change in state, there is no forward motion--or motion of any kind. Simply stagnancy."

The Artist Behind The Lexus IS DesignThe Artist Behind The Lexus IS Design in Official DeviantArt Contests More Like This
Robert Evans (PSAS), a longtime member of the deviantART community, has succeeded in making a radical artistic statement about turning artists' visions into actual realities.
Robert's pathway to actualization of his vision was facilitated by forward-thinking executives at Lexus who reached out to the creative cutting edge, to deviantART artists, for new revolutionary design ideas for the production of their 2014 Lexus IS. The Lexus IS Design Contest was born and dA's Robert Evans has come away with the prize: experiencing having his personal artistic conceptualization of how an automobile should look and roll become a real world reality. As Grand Prize Winner, the new Lexus built to Robert's design was debuted at the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas before 60,000 US and international buyers and then featured at the Los Angeles Auto Show before 12,000 industry decision-makers and 4,000 media correspondents from 50 countries.
How to interview a politician.A tiny snippet from Jeremy Paxman's interview with Silvio Berlusconi.How to interview a politician. in Personal More Like This
Some might not know who Berlusconi is: he's a media tycoon, 3 time Prime Minister of Italy and is generally regarded as the face of political vice and corruption in Europe.
Many won't know who Paxman is: he's the brick that the BBC throw at people like Berlusconi. His questions being so blunt that it's nigh on impossible to wriggle out of answering them without looking more of a prat than you did at the start.
I'm pretty sure that Paxman also hates that fact that you, whoever you are, share the same planet as him:

“Have you heard of Patreon?”
“Why doesn’t your site have a Donate button?”
Put simply, I have this (evidently archaic) opinion that; if you want to make money, you have to do the work first. I don’t like the idea of taking money off people unless they get something for it immediately, not [insert timeframe here] down the line. It feels like a scam. That’s why I produce all those cheap digital comics: to finance my larger projects (and which is why I get pissed off when I find them being distributed freely online, because it slows everything down).
Even for large projects, like video-games that only have a niche audience and which big publishers won’t ever assist: I don’t see crowd funding as a particularly good way to go about getting production capital. I prefer the early release approach, such as that Mojang took with Minecraft.

Yay for American Independence. No, really!An odd statement for a quasi-neo-imperialist to say, I know, but if the Colonials hadn't (justifiably) got shirty over lack of representation in Parliament, the British Empire would never have become the behemoth that it did.Yay for American Independence. No, really! in Personal More Like This
Thanks to the rebellion/revolution, the British Government changed the way it conducted itself so as to ensure such an incident would never happen again.
Had they not, a revolution similar to that seen in France, 1789, would have very likely occurred on home turf.
The French leadership maintained their "all powerful" fašade, and in assisting the American colonies, spent a fortune. This further angered their already irate people, who, in seeing that it could be done, decided to have a little revolution of their own.
So, with the economy booming thanks to renewed transatlantic trade between Fair Blighty and the newly formed United States and with Britain's arch enemy France focused on tearing itself apart, there was nothing to stop the Empire's expansion.

Se ha dado a conocer por científicos y por la madre del Deviant que tarde o temprano esta página sufrirá una terrible Inundación a causa de muchísimas deviaciones... se pronostica un abatible temporal de dibujos random de más de seis dibujos por Stack de deviantWATCH en los mensajes, seguido de una tormenta de Mierdibujos bastante aterradores, una nevada de fotos y quizás paper childs y por último unos ligeros chubascos de cómics y animaciones flash.
